Waldorf Schools consultant says "education of the heart" can cultivate emotional intelligence listen01/26/12 SeÃ¡n Kinane
WMNF Drive-Time News Thursday | Listen to this entire show:
Because of pressure from politicians, most educators in the U.S. are forced to â€œteach to the testâ€ even though they have the skills and training to provide a much more rounded education. Thatâ€™s the take of Eugene Schwartz, an educational consultant working mainly with Waldorf Schools.
â€œâ€¦Weâ€™re not teaching to the test, weâ€™re teaching to the child.â€
Schwartz is speaking at 7:00 p.m. today at the Suncoast Waldorf School at 1857 Curlew Road in Palm Harbor. Phone: 727-786-8311.
